Estelle T. Griswold worked at a "planned parenthood" clinic in Connecticut in the 1960's.
She gave advice to couples about birth control.
Then one day she was sued by the state because it was against the law to give advice about birth control.
The case went all the way to the United States Supreme Court.
The court voted 7-2 in favor of Griswold, under the First, Third, Fourth, and Ninth Amendments, that together created the right to privacy in marital relations.
And then Estelle T. Griswold was found innocent, and continued to work to help couples plan pregnancy.
